I’m really making a serious attempt to keep my politics out of my blog. But I feel the need to open up today!
…to read what I have to say!!!!
My political opinions are highly regarded. By me.
And with all the bullshit that both parties are throwing around, and with both parties whoring to get votes from any “group” they can pander to. It amazes me that…NOT ONE OF THESE POLITICAL CONTENDERS HAS ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF AGEISM!
…and we all know who WON’T get hired! Might I add that Human Resources was so much better when it was “Personnel”?
And a few of them are of “ageist” years old!
Yeah. All three of you should be ashamed of yourselves for NOT addressing ageism as the new “ISM” and for NOT trying to bag the Senior vote. You ARE that group!
For the record, Bernie is my man. I am very pleased that he cares about “We the People”. I hear some people saying that he is a socialist. Well, what’s wrong with that anyway? Yes. His thoughts are to raise taxes so that we will be a country to take care of her citizens with a nationalized health care. Is that so wrong? Yes. He wants to raise taxes so that college students will have that education without owing a mortgage in student loans. Is that so wrong?
For people who are employed—how much of your paycheck is going toward your medical insurance? Yeah. I thought so. Think about how your taxes will be raised and you won’t have that deductible any more. You will bring more money home from each paycheck.
And I know that Mr. Sanders will not win the nomination for the Democratic Party.
But it’s also about greed. As Americans, we are a greedy bunch when it truly comes to helping our neighbors. Many Americans will attend services at their place of Worship and vow to God, or, recite passages from the storybook otherwise known as The Bible. These Bible Bangers will read and recite passages about treating everyone with respect and love. And as soon as those same individuals leave the confines of their church, or the confines of their reading rooms, they spew hate to those who aren’t the same as them.
Um hum. It seems that many of those who quote the Bible and wear their Sunday best to those little white churches don’t practice what they preach!
You know what I’m talking about. I don’t have to go into details about the various groups of people who are “hated” because of the Christian tighty righties!
So true–and this comes into play with politics!
But fear not self-righteous righties. I’m an equal opportunist.
The extreme left is just as bad. Political Correctness and over sensitivity rule their roosts. If ONE police officer makes a boo-boo, then they feel ALL policemen and policewomen are a force that needs a makeover to a more criminal-friendly bunch. These are the people who made compliments on one’s appearance “offensive”. These are the people who turned ANY form of disagreement into “bullying”.
..and this is why I LOVE Bill Maher! Like me, he is an equal opportunist when it comes to politics. He will point the finger at both parties and he especially despises Political Correctness!
With both of these extreme political Donkeys and Elephants, there is no compromise.
Both of these political animals are starting to annoy me.
And that is what is wrong.
I am an Independent. I vote for the person who I think will do the better job. NOTE—I write “better”—not “best” because our political parties have been flushed down the toilet while the extremist shit seems to float to the top.
.…and I wouldn’t want to be with any other party at this time!
What happened to the moderates of yesteryear? Where is the happy medium?
Um. No. It isn’t hard to understand. Take stock of yourselves!
What happened to platforms of what candidates will actually do for “We the People”? Why do we have to watch Political Dozens? How come politicians are more focused on bashing each other rather then what they would do for our people?
Why were Super PACS ever allowed in the first place? Why is a bought nomination acceptable?
Super PACS and Super Delegates. Both suck.
And don’t even get me started on “delegates”. A delegation does NOT a democracy make. The popular vote makes a democracy.
And so I will remain an Independent. I believe in equality for all people. I believe that NO MAN EVER, EVER, EVER, HAS THE RIGHT TO TELL A WOMAN WHAT DO TO WITH HER BODY. EVER!!!!
I don’t believe in outsourcing jobs to other countries and I don’t believe that American corporations should have tax breaks.
I believe in being fair. Don’t tax someone making $35,000 a year the same as someone making $200,000. And for chrissakes if a transgender male/female wants to use the same restroom as me, I don’t care—when nature calls, it doesn’t matter who is in the stall next to me. I’ve changed diapers and I’ve gotten pregnant. I KNOW what the human anatomy looks like. So what!
SHE stands for Liberty and Justice for all. Let’s remember that, shall we? Thank you Lady Liberty!
But back to my Independent status politically. I am unable to vote in my State’s primary because Pennsylvania does not host an open primary.
Yes. I’ve voted in every election, both local and national. However, I won’t be wearing this next week because PA is a closed primary.
Does that make me angry? I’ll admit—it does a bit, but not enough for me to change my affiliate.
And until both the Republican and Democrat parties take stock of who they are, how they stand, stop allowing super PACS, stop bashing each other, and start concentrating on what they would really do for “We the People”, I shall remain true to who I am.
And I may just write Elizabeth Warren in as my choice when I vote for President!
Once again, I’m all for Bill. HE should run for office!
I hope all my girls are Independent women–even if they aren’t politically, I still hope they are independent thinkers!
